Help Wanted

This year people seem to be a lot calmer about the holidays.  I have yet to see really long lines at the stores or flaring tempers. Maybe Internet shopping has helped, or maybe it is just too early to gauge the psyche of consumers.
While other areas may be affected by rising unemployment, Midland has moved up the list as having the second highest per capita income in the nation.  Employers are desperate for workers, as the usual pool has drifted into the lucrative oil industry.  One indication in the dip in retail skills...

Things are pretty bad when you have to label a box.
